Dual Boot XP & Win98SE

You can either use a boot loader like system commander and such, or you can just make 2 partitions

Install win 98 onto the one, then install XP onto the other, and the XP bootloader should detect 98 and add it to your bootlist at startup :)
Goatman, good rule of thumb to follow in multi-booting -- *oldest OS first (avoids a lot of extra work/problems that way). Put 98 on your c:\ partition, and run XP setup while in 98 and install it to another partition.

* you can put 95 OR 98 on your primary partition, 2k next partition, ME next, and finally XP -- all will work from the same drive using that simple precept - oldest first.

my point exactly lonman:) nt loader works great why screw with it...just arrow up or down to the os and enter easy as that...now why complicate things
I have been running my current set up for a while and don't wanna loose my HD, how do I add it after the fact, I can't get the Windows 98 setup to run

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
